Pathmark Perversity - New York

Cucumbers, celery and stem-vine tomatoes
were hobnobbing with my Russett potatoes.
Pears and plums and one Georgian peach
winked at the Wisk and Snuggled the bleach.
Pretzels and popcorn and the Tostitos chips
ogled in awe as Meyer's bacon strips stripped!
Mr. Clean and Mrs. Dash espied a risqued art - 
when double-clipped coupons tainted the cart!

The Boy From New York

There once was a boy from New York 
Who refused to taste any pork
Until one bright day
A damsel did say
“let me feed you, my love, from this fork”

My New Neighbor

Paul McCartney bought a home
Just blocks away from mine.
Of course, he faces Central Park
With views, I’m sure, divine.

My whole apartment likely
In his living room would fit.
I’ll let you know as soon as I
Have been inside of it.

For now that we’ll be neighbors,
I’m convinced – don’t you agree?
That I’ll receive an invitation
For a spot of tea.

I’ll tell him of the fan mail 
That I sent him long ago.
I never got his answer
But the mail is so darn slow!

We’ll catch up on how life has been – 
I want to know it all;
I’m sure we’ll have a lovely time
When I hear from Sir Paul.

A Two-Timer From New York Town

A two-timer cheater from New York town 
Who just enjoys so much to go down 
Stocks tires and his likes 
He owns cars and a pink bike 
And he uses them when does it all down!

A Dork From New York

There once was a fellow from New York
This dummy was an absolute dork
He bet on the Jets
A move he regrets
He thought babies were brought by the stork

Four-Three-Two Park In New York

Four-Three-Two Park in New York
Haunts the masses night and day
Each cardinal view shows phallus palace
Belonging to those ultra famous?
Such joy-stick of the rich
Belongs to a one-legged giant
You'll see Gulliver's thumb up
Some say it's freedom from poor people tower

Four-Three-Two Park in New York
could be mid-finger of a financial foe
A sore pinkie
It's match stick of the ten percent
A giant chop stick
A may pole sans ribbons
It is the pencil tower

Four-Three-Two Park in New York
Is a tooth pick award
and that too, is final.

New York Barbecue

Once there was a right dandy dude from New York
He dined each day on the finest loin of pork
Never met a pig he did not admire,
Roasting on a flaming barby fire
Made even tastier by the pop of the cork.

Big Apple Eye Scream

Central Park's cool event in May
Brings the gigolos out to play
Ilene says, "Its true!
They're all over you!"
Its Banana Split & Run Day

Famous poet Barclay Cruse
curent toast of New York salons
wears tinted glasses and Italian shoes
and composes doggerel for subway johns.

Acclaimed a purist by his colleagues
hard-edge painter Geoffrey Pyle
earned during Summers spent at Antibes
covert commissions from Armstrong Tile.

Junk sculptor Cranston Bold
collects mufflers and I'm told
often edits his creations
to fix his Chevy station wagon.

Cordell composes way-out music
quartets for flute and flushing toilets.
His father was a music critic
and caned him with his clarinet.

Peacocks always strut about
In all their cobalt splendor;
While peahens, on the other hand,
Get ripped off for their gender.

Many birds do follow suit – 
The males get all the frills;
While females’ feathers, drab and brown,
Don’t offer many thrills.

As humans go, the opposite
Is usually the case;
For sparkling jewels and colors bright
The female does embrace.

Except in New York City, where
We’ve set the species back,
Since most stylish New York women
Like to keep their plumage black!

Hot Dogs a New York Tale

Hot Dogs A New York Tale

There once lived a Mayor named Di Blasio,
Who had steamy, hot desires for Ocasio!
In an effort to woo her and all health crackpots, too, 
He pulled out his very lengthy political lance.

"Ah, Divine Maiden, I want you all for my own.
For only this for you will I do,
I am deporting all unhealthy, evil hot dogs to
Maiden Ocasio in gratitude fell to her feet.

So Nathan's went out of business!
Oh how greatly, the New Yorkers wept!
Said she: "The world will indeed be Green!
You and I will be King and Queen..
No cows, no cars, no steel buildings
Divinely, so peachy-clean!"

The Universe, Narrowed Down To New York

He was a bit overawed
   his topic, too broad
A speech on 'The Universe'
   ought not to be terse

So he narrowed it down
   to his beloved hometown
He focused on New York --
   Jews and Muslims who eat pork

He cited some verses
   from the Bible and Koran
Then he threw up his hands
   Said, "I've done the best I can."

The judges cried, "Bravo!"
   You're a brilliant young man
We award you first prize:
   An autographed copy of
   ~ 'Green Eggs and Ham'

Greetings From the Sun

I thrive 
Wherever I go 
Abundance and generosity 
Wherever I shine 

When I get up 
Even the horizon is at the party
With its sensual and welcoming colours 

When I lie down
Every second is a delight 
for the one who sees me 

The moon would only want me for herself 
But I have no choice 
I must love everyone 

Without getting too close 
At the risk of getting burned 

That's why we can only embrace very rarely 
Fatally destined 
To be separated 
But together forever

Aby, New York, 25th May 2022

Clintons In New York (A Halloween Tale)

As darkness descends quietly, upon the little town 
The children, eager with their bags, are walking so carefree
They know no fear but taught to them, by their parents’ words
So quickly, they all seek their prize and take, this Halloween

While coming with the darkness, upon this hallows eve
An evil force awakened by the many who pretend
With masks upon their faces, hoping to cause fear
The darkness hides the truth, that’s bringing the towns end

The scary dying breath that now falls upon this town
Is a residential force that has sought its permanence
May the many who depict it by scoffing with its mask
Soon realize they’re the reason that it never up and went

Big Apple Eve

I pictured her milking an udder
And it made my whole body shudder
Then mum piped up,
"Forget her, pup!
She's bound to be some buddy's mudder!"

'car 54,' Pandemic-Updated

Hum or Sing this to the 
tune of the theme song
of 'Car 54, Where are You?'

There's no gold up in the Bronx
   Brooklyn's cops are all uptight
There's looting up in Harlem
   That's lasted five long nights

Manhattan is a ghost town
   There's nobody around
Mayor de Blasio,
   Where are you?


The hit TV Show, 'Car 54,
Where are You,' ran from
Sept., 1961 to April, '63.
You can google the theme
song, and even watch a
clip or two from a show.
Pretty silly stuff about
a pair of hapless cops.

New York Christians, Muslims, and Jews
Claim they walked a mile in God's shoes
As you may surmise
When asked for the size
They say they went barefoot like youse!
